Mohegan Sun Hosts New England Food Truck Festival

downloadYes, Food Trucks are all the craze these days.  A food truck is a large vehicle equipped to cook and sell food. In my day, they included  the Good Humor Man ice cream trucks, or the kind that stopped and still today, at many manufacturing plants like my mom & dad’s, and businesses throughout America for morning breaks, lunch and afternoons selling frozen or prepackaged food.  In the United States, the Texas chuckwagon was a precursor to the American food truck, helping cowhands in the later 1800s herding cattle from the Southwest to markets in the North and East kept.

In recent years, food trucks offer gourmet cuisine and a variety of specialties and ethnic menus – becoming a favorite and particularly popular way to eat at festivals and events of all kinds.
